The other neat thing kind of ties into the Don't Quit challenge at 52-Card Pickup . I've been crafting in one way or another the majority of my life and must be naturally born to it because I love all things art. The don't quit part comes in where after trying several businesses in crafting and ceramics and none turning out to be roaring successes here I am still plugging along in my little studio and low and behold at 60 yrs. old 2 of my cards have been published in 2 separate magazines just since January. That's not all of the neatness because today I went over to a new to me scrapbook store not far from me and as I was checking out names came up and one of the girls behind the counter recognized my name because she is one of my very first followers. How cool is that? I never dreamed I would meet anyone that followed my blog. It is as they say,"A small world'. I felt kind of like a celebrity.
So, with the new stamp I bought at Scrapper's Boutique today, I say, keep pursuing what you love, don't quit, and Start each day with "Whee"!
I also bought some Neenah paper and yes it does make a difference when using Copics and ProMarkers. I have a couple of Copic flesh colors and a few ProMarkers and then I have some Bic Markit pens. I read on some blogs that you could mimic the Copics with the Markit pens because they are alcohol based also. I wanted to kind of play around on the cheap before making a big investment in Copics. I still need to practice on the flesh, but all in all I think this turned out pretty good with my mix of pens. I especially like my very own hand drawn tree. I love the little heart in her hair, I will probably collect the whole series of these stamps just because she reminds me of happy days gone by.
